In this article by Nick Freemantle and James Mason (29 May, pp 1480-2), the reference list did not include reference 2, the NICE discussion paper (“Faster access to modern treatment”: how NICE appraisal will work. Leeds: NHS Executive, 1999). As a consequence, from reference 3 onwards, reference numbers in the text refer to the previous number in the reference list.
